Rovers made it back to back wins with a comfortable win at home to Manuden.

Rovers went on the attack from the kick off, creating chances and dominating play.After five mins Rovers won a corner, Kian whipped in a good cross which Dan T converted into the net with a good finish. 1-0 to Rovers. Soon after Noah went on a mazey run taking on the Manuden defence, He then unleashed a fierce shot which was deflected into the net by an unfortunate Manuden player. 2-0 Rovers. Rovers were playing well passing the ball and controlling the match. Lucas dribbled the ball into the box, but had his feet taken from him with a badly timed tackle. Penalty to Rovers. Lucas stepped forward and converted the stop kick. 3-0 Rovers. Just before half time Alfie who had hardly had a touch of the ball pulled off a great save, pushing a shot around the post. Rovers went in at half time 3 0 to the good.

The second half began with Rovers continuing their dominance. Kian took on the Manuden defence, going around a number of players before delivering a good cross which Dan T converted with a cool finish for his second. Kian again was instrumental for Rovers' fourth. He used his strength to force his way through the Manuden team, crossing the ball which Noah fired into the net. 5-0 Rovers. Rovers next goal saw  Dan T put a good pass through to Kian who found the back of the net with a clinical shot. 6-0 Rovers. Second half keeper James kept Rovers' clean sheet with a good save just before the final whistle.
